Yeah, so you say, but it didn't happen until you show us pictures.

Lots and lots of pretty pictures.

I can appreciate your concerns. Too many crazies in this world.

I do have a q?

You said your first batch was synchronised while the second was not. Is the difference your selection process, luck of the draw or is there something else that accounts for the difference?

So the asynchronous nature of Aeshna umbrosa is natural while the other four are all synchronous by nature. Are there major differences in environmental niche the 4 inhabit vis-a-vis Aeshna umbrosa? Seems it would have to be if the photoperiod is the determinant.

Unless ...

What is the timeline in the natural habitat for each species? Do they develop at different times during the season? Timed with predation?

What of the possibility that Aeshna umbrosa was late to the evolutionary party and this asynchronous timing was advantageous due to competition?

I'm just spouting.

I'm not a bug guy. I have no idea what I'm talking about. But this is interesting.

Re: Thanks Covid
Ouch!

The bug guys I knew in school were quite adept at improvising equipment because of their penchant to chase creepy-crawlies into dark corners on the spur of the moment. But your professional stuff and the professional results you get from it? Ouch!
